Our Christmas season begins this Sunday with a new series. As a child, remember those times when you opened a long-awaited gift, shouting, "just what I always wanted!"
Beyond her wildest dreams, the young Mary could have never imagined being part of the greatest GIFT to the world. I love her exuberant pondering, "my soul magnifies the Lord, and spirit rejoices in God my Savior." Her joy arose from a faith in the promises of God and is present for each of us today. This December, I'm teaching on finding this amazing joy in our Savior! It's going to be a great season. Take a few minutes this week and reflect on Mary's Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55)
